Join us to help the children of St. Catherine of Siena School in Northern Uganda.

This year, we continue to raise funds for the building of primary level classroom blocks, which will allow students  to continue their education at St. Catherine's after kindergarten.  Building expected to begin in December 2018.  

 

Race Details

The event takes place in Delaware's beautiful Rockford Park. The 100-year-old Rockford Tower is the centerpiece of this park, situated among rolling hills and vistas and offering beautiful views of the city.

This certified 5K course is challenging enough for the avid runner, and enjoyable for walkers and dogs as well!

Free race shirts are given to the first 200 registered in all categories.

Be a team captain

  Working together in a group for a cause gives greater energy and support.  You can represent a school, workplace, Church, family or a group of friends.  Whichever you choose, it will be a lot of fun!  

Teams choose their own names, create their own t-shirts and can even create their own fundraising event.  Be creative and have fun!  The team that brings in the most money or has the most members will be awarded a team prize.
